‘Effective action’ being taken to improve primary school following Ofsted inspection

PUBLISHED: 14:00 11 January 2018


The gap between boys’ and girls’ maths and English needs to narrow at a Worlebury school before Ofsted can consider it a good school.

The schools watchdog inspected Worlebury Primary School in April last year, and say it requires improvement.

It carried out a monitoring inspection in December, and, in the results published this week, it said: “Senior leaders and governors are taking effective action to tackle the areas requiring improvement... in order to become a good school.”

However, inspectors said boys’ achievements need to improve, and milestones in pupils’ progress need to be recorded.

The report says headteacher Michelle Bamford acted with ‘urgency’ and ‘rigour’ to raise expectations across the school since the first inspection.

The report adds: “Morale is high and there is a sense of optimism and excitement about the future.”
